Today in Young Women's we talked about being daughters of Heavenly Father and how his son, Jesus Christ was sent to die for us. This video really touched me and honestly got me a bit emotional. I decided that I would share with you my testimony and how I came to know of his love for me as his daughter, so here it goes:
In Seminary last year we read 3rd Nephi where Christ comes to America and visits with the people. My teacher, Bro. Santiago turned off all the lights in the room and we sat in darkness as it was read aloud by a man who sounded like Jesus Christ. As we ended by singing "Where Can I Turn for Peace," I felt the Spirit tell me that God and Jesus Christ live! They know me personally-my strengths, weaknesses, questions/doubts I may have- and know exactly what I'm going through and what I will go through. I'm so grateful for this church and who I have become through this gospel. I know that this is what makes me happy and if I continue to turn to Him, I will become better and more like Him.
I AM HIS DAUGHTER!
I am living proof that if you seek out to know about Him and His love for you, you will receive an answer from the Holy Ghost. But you must do your part and search for Him. I promise you that if you really take time to look around you every day and note all of the things that he has given you- big or small- than you will more fully feel of his love for you as his Son or Daughter. I leave these things with you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
